City of Porterville

December 2009 Employee of the Month

David Behrens

Dave began employment with the City of Porterville in June 2005 as Assistant Engineer for the Engineering Division of the Public Works Department.  He came to the City after 33 years of land surveying experience at R.L. Schafer & Associates.

Dave works closely with subdivision and other land development projects, which includes checking public improvement plans, final maps, parcel maps, lot line adjustments, parcel mergers, and preparation of property legal descriptions.  His land surveying skills are highly valued and he has been involved in teaching these skills to co-workers in a survey crew environment.

Dave is competent in GPS/Trimble and TOPCON data collection systems, and works extensively on City projects requiring design from field topography.  He is also experienced in concrete curb and gutter design and staking, as well as problem solving unforeseen issues in the field.

Dave has lived in the Terra Bella/Porterville area his entire life. He enjoys singing in his Church Choir, working in the garden, and playing with his grandson.  Married for 37 years to Vikki, who is a first grade teacher at Belleview School, they take pleasure in traveling to the Oregon coast as much as possible.  Dave and Vikki have three adult children.

Dave has also been a participant of the Employee Incentive Program since his arrival at the City, riding his bike to and from work almost everyday. Sponsored and funded by Tulare County Association of Governments through their “Make a Difference in Air Quality” program, Dave has earned over $630 in award gift cards. That’s more than 1,890 daily round-trip rides on his bicycle. “Green Dave” has been seen airborne across the Rite-Aid parking lot on several occasions and wife Vikki is plugging a local reality show called “Riding with Dave.”

Dave is a highly skilled, integral part of the Public Works Department, so join me in congratulating Dave Behrens, the December 2009 Employee of the Month, for his service to the City of Porterville!
